When Lucy had reached her original fitness goals, she was ready to take on a new challenge.
She knew she wanted to push herself. She knew she wanted to try something new. And most importantly, she knew she wanted to try something completely out of the box!
Lucy had always loved wrestling as a kid and one day found the confidence to give it a try for herself…And she hasn’t looked back since!
She now travels all over the country to different shows as her wrestling alter ego and is using her own athletic ability to bring down even the biggest of foes!
“When you’re in the ring, it’s just incredible!”
All was going so well…But during one of her matches, in front of a live crowd, Lucy managed to dislocate her elbow.
Her injury meant that she was out of the gym for over 6 weeks and couldn’t wrestle for at least 3 months.
Being taken away from doing what she loved most had a massive effect on her mental health and confidence, to the point where when she was ready to return to the gym, she was still nervous of causing any more damage to her elbow.
Coming back in with her arm still in a supportive brace, the DVCC team sat down with Lucy, we spoke about her options and helped create a personalised programme that worked around her.
We helped her focus on what she CAN still do, even with her arm!
Now, her arm has fully recovered, she has her confidence back and thanks to the support from The DVCC community, she is back in the ring!
